Chaucer and Boccaccio by Robert R. Edwards

Book Description

In the late Middle Ages, Chaucer invents two imaginative domains crucial to his culture and to our understanding of the emergence of selfhood, subjectivity and social arrangements; antiquity and late-medieval modernity. Edwards demonstrates in this study how this was the result of Chaucer's reading and re-writing of the works of Boccaccio, which provide sources and models for portraying the classical past and medieval modernity. In so doing, Edwards provides us with a valuable way of assessing Chaucer's analysis of late medieval culture.

Flight from Desire by Robert R. Edwards Flight from Desire, Hardback (January 2008)

Seeks to reformulate the master narrative of erotic discourse in medieval literature. Starting from the traditions initiated by Augustine's "Confessions" and Ovid's "Ars Amatoria" and "Remedia Amoris", this work resituates the love doctrine of medieval texts in a literary dialectic with desire.
